Cast of Characters

This is a semi-anonymous blog. “Semi” because I’ve gotten kind of lazy about concealing my real identity, but I still keep things basically anonymous.

I write using pseudonyms. Here’s the who’s-who:

The Fam:

  • Jake = My husband—tall, dark, and handsome.
  • Marixsa = Yours truly.
  • Puppy = Our makeshift child.  Technically he’s a 65-pound dog who believes that he’s a tiny lap puppy.
  • Kitty = Our feisty, chatty 13-year-old kitty.  She’s a through-and-through diva.  (2019 update: Kitty ditched us to be an outdoor cat and live with our neighbors.  Little brat.  When we moved to a new town, Kitty stayed behind.)
  • Mega Fluff = Kitten we adopted in spring 2018.  She’s ridiculously fluffy.


The Medical Peeps:

  • Dr. C = my main reproductive endocrinologist.  I’ve yet to come up with an appropriate alias for him, but it’s in the works.
  • Dr. Goodman = the reproductive endocrinologist who’s done most of my fertility testing.  She’s a minor character.
  • Dr. Din = The OB/GYN with other, fancy initials behind his name who did my February 2017 surgery.
  • Dr. Maryland = my latest doc who’s working with me to solve the puzzle of my mystery bleeding.
